Can anybody explain what purpose the law serves? I haven't looked any of it up - I'm just taking the sweet gal with an opinion at her word.

I'm wondering if the law was for all wildlife and this group is just singling out hogs

In that case Georgia politicians will get of cheap.

The law reclassifies feral hogs as wildlife and makes it necessary for the commercial filming of wildlife to require a permit.

Georgia, makes like 3 billion a year from the filming industry, 3 rd highest film production state after Cali, NY. Many studios including the NFL and various other productions are threatening to move out if a specific bill (HB757) is passed, so they will be hurting a bit.

1st story I googled.

I believe there are similer laws for filming in several states now? Alaska?

I think the major difference is that Georgia's law is all encompassing including the filming of wildlife on private lands. Most laws in the rest of the country pertain to filming on public lands, either state or federal. I have checked several states so far and I can't find any that include private land commercial filming.

In reading the GA law, I am wondering if maybe the purpose of the law was different than what the law's actual scope turned out to be. This would not be the first time that a poorly written law covered too little or too much. Reading the law sounds like the intent is to regulate the handling of wildlife used in commercial productions, but is all inclusive regarding to wildlife filming.

So filming through a scope bs posting on YouTube and monetizing the video would require paying this tax?

I can't foresee anybody enforcing this - tell me the State isn't going to dedicated a funded position to watch for commercial video of hogs ...

Why not deer?

Read the law and what I posted above. It is an easy read and you will understand clearly about the deer issue.

Technically, a monetized video would require a permit. That is correct.
